ARTH 268 - Modern Art in Barcelona


FDR: HA Fine Arts Distribution
Experiential Learning (EXP): Yes
Credits: 4

Spanning the years 1888 to 1939, a period bookended by the Barcelona Universal Exposition and the end of the Spanish Civil War, this course provides a firsthand look at the artists, architects, and designers who defined Catalan modern art in the late-19th and early 20thcentury. Students will study the aesthetic and socio-political circumstances of the ‘Renaixança;’ ‘Noucentisme;’ and the young artists who merged to define modern European art - famous names that include Picasso, Miró, and Dalí. We will then turn to the national capital, Madrid, to visit some of these artist’s most celebrated artworks. Anticipated site visits during our abroad experience include Gaudí’s Palau Güell, Casa Batlló, the Fundació Joan Miró, the Fudació Gala-Salvador Dalí, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina.
